The Kirkwall Chantry is the seat of the Chantry in Kirkwall.

Background Edit

Kirkwall's chantry towers above the estates of Hightown, rivaled only by the Viscount's Keep. The chantry serves as a symbol as much as it does a place of worship: a symbol of the Chantry's importance in the tradition and the lives of Kirkwall's citizens, and its iron grip on the mages.

The chantry was constructed by the dwarves and originally served as a wealthy magister's estate during the Tevinter Imperium's rule over Kirkwall.[1] It was rebuilt and converted into the city's religious center after the slave uprising.

Involvement Edit

The chantry is home to Grand Cleric Elthina, the voice of the Divine in Kirkwall. It also houses the dispossessed Prince of Starkhaven, Sebastian Vael.

Mother Petrice kidnaps Saemus Dumar and executes him in the Kirkwall Chantry in an attempt to pin his death on the Qunari.

During Act 3, the chantry is destroyed, along with all within it, by Anders in an attempt to ignite a full-scale war between mages and templars. Knight-Commander Meredith Stannard invokes the Right of Annulment in retaliation for the obliteration of the chantry and the death of the Grand Cleric.

Notes Edit

  • In Act 2, if Aveline Vallen is in the party and spoken to while in the chantry, she will sometimes remark "I'm uncomfortable around chantry sisters. All because of that red-haired trickster in Lothering." This is a reference to Leliana from Dragon Age: Origins.
  • In Act 1 Bethany Hawke claims that she misses Sister Leliana's story telling.
